Creating numberless pubsub nodes?

Hi, there!

I’m trying to apply the pubsub to traditional bulletin board, so the article writer can notice who wrote the comment on his article in realtime.

And I came to the idea: “How about creating pubsub node for each new article, and the author and other commentors are subscribed to that pubsub?” Then, whenever the new comment is added to the article, the author and other commentors can notice them. (I think that is what they are doing in Facebook.)

But, as I started desing, I had to think about the performance problem. The bulletin board would have hundres of new articles per day.

So, my question is “Would it be OK to create pubsub node for each new article, in perspective of performance?

I’m asking for your wisdom.

Thank you.
